The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) yesterday warned members of the public against fraudulent messages and videos targeted at unsuspecting loan seekers and owners of small-scale businesses purportedly facilitated by the Bank.

The Bank in a statement signed by its Acting Director, Corporate Communications, Osita Nwanisobi, noted that while the CBN has several development finance intervention programmes from which different categories of businesses had benefitted (and still benefitting), “it does not do so through direct interaction with prospective applicants.”

It stressed that there are clearly spelt out procedures for accessing CBN intervention funds, which are disbursed through Participating Financial Institutions (PFls), such as deposit money banks (DMBs), Development Finance Institutions (DFls) and Microfinance Banks (MFBs).

“The Bank also does not facilitate investment schemes. Members of the public, particularly youth and owners of small-scale businesses, are therefore advised to disregard any video or text message proposing investment schemes or charging them fees on the pretext that their organisations are endorsed by the CBN and therefore would guarantee easy access to CBN loans.

“These videos and massages are fraudulent and anyone who enters into correspondence with them does so at his or her own risk. The CBN has neither appointed nor accredited any organisation to serve as agent on its behalf for the purpose of investment or applying for intervention loans.

“Prospective applicants are therefore advised to approach their respective banks, NIRSAL Micro-Finance Bank or the Central Bank of Nigeria branch nearest to them for clarification on the procedure for accessing any of the CBN-related facility,” it stated.
